A Maryland sheriff blasted both President Joe Biden and Congress during an emotional speech on Monday after an illegal alien was arrested for allegedly killing a mother of five children. Rachel Morin was raped and then murdered while on a hiking trail last year, and authorities finally arrested the suspect, El Savador-born Victor Antonio Martinez, late last week.

“Rachel was not his first victim, and it is my understanding that this suspect, this monster, fled to the United States illegally after committing the brutal murder of a young woman in El Salvador a month earlier in January of 2023. once in our country and likely emboldened by anonymity, he brutally attacked a nine-year-old girl and her mother during a home invasion in March of 2023 in Los Angeles,” Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler said. “And as everyone, as I believe is aware, that was our first DNA match linking Rachel’s case to the Los Angeles case. It has been a fear of mine that once we identified this suspect, the result would be exactly this.”

Fox News added:

Morin’s naked and beaten body was found in a culvert on Aug. 6 after the 37-year-old had gone missing the day before while out on the Ma and Pa Trail in Bel Air, a quiet and typically safe town about 28 miles northeast of Baltimore.

Gahler said that Martinez Hernandez was free to roam all over the U.S. having entered the country illegally in February 2023, about a month after he was wanted in El Salvador for homicide. Police linked Martinez Hernandez’s DNA to a March home invasion in Los Angeles where a mother and her 9-year-old daughter were assaulted.

“I want to now direct these comments to 1,600 Pennsylvania Avenue and to every member in both chambers of Congress. We are 1800 miles away from the southern border, and the American citizens are not safe because of failed immigration policies,” Gahler said.

“This is the second time in just two years that an innocent Harford County woman has lost her life to a criminal in our country illegally. Let me repeat that, 1,800 miles from the Southern border and this is the second woman in our county to be killed by an illegal alien. In both cases, they are suspects from El Salvador with ties to criminal gangs. This should not be happening,” he noted further.

“To my citizens here in Harford County, to every citizen in this country, this is a public safety crisis and one that we can so easily fix by really coming up with a workable immigration policy for our country. It’s just insane that we would allow things like Rachel’s murder to happen, and when I say ‘allow it,’ we allowed it by letting him into this country unchallenged,” he said. “That shouldn’t happen to families in our country. This is preventable.”

The sheriff noted there is no death penalty in Maryland but he hopes Martinez is convicted and rots in prison. For the record, former President Donald Trump also commented on Morin’s murder.

“Rachel Morin was on a run in Maryland, just like Laken Riley was in Georgia, when she was brutally killed by an illegal monster who was wanted for murder in El Salvador and fled to the USA because he knew Crooked Joe would let him in,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Now Rachel Morin’s 5 young children will grow up without their mother because Crooked Joe refuses to shut down the border.”
